From fashion to food, various industries have been undertaking initiatives to promote gender diversity and inclusiveness in honour of Pride month. In one such case, Priyanka Chopra’s Indian restaurant Sona in New York joined the bandwagon by preparing Pride-special rainbow foods.
The restaurant posted on Instagram alongside a picture of the dish and captioned, “In celebration of PRIDE, we created a SONA-original Indian Cassata rainbow cake. While Cassata is a traditional sweet from Italy, it is wildly popular in India, where it essentially takes the form of a layered ice cream cake. Live boldly and explore (and taste) every colour of the rainbow.”
The restaurant has also introduced what they call a limited-edition Pride cocktail that combines desi flavors with tequila–” a frozen and flamboyant mix of silver tequila, lime juice, coconut, and muddled cardamom, garnished with rainbow gummy bears.”
